Annual ACA conference held in Helsinki

The 19th annual conference of the Academic Cooperation Association convened in Helsinki on 10–12 June 2012 under the banner Tying it all together. Internationalisation, excellence, funding and social dimension in higher education.

The conference had almost 300 international delegates – academics and other experts – from around the world, mostly from Europe. CIMO was in charge of the conference arrangements together with ACA. The sessions and working groups tackled the internationalisation, quality, funding and social dimension of higher education, seeking to link all of the dimensions.

Academic Cooperation Association (ACA) was founded in 1993 as a primarily European association, which promotes the internationalisation of higher education and innovations. As a think tank, its activities include
research and analyses, publications, and seminars and conferences. The association is made up of national organisations, which support the internationalisation of higher education in their home countries. ACA’s Secretariat is located in Brussels. CIMO is a founding member of ACA.
